Tunic

Confession: I ordered this “top” thinking that it was a dress.  But when it arrived, it was much too short, and the slit was way too high (yikes!) for me to wear it as a dress, let alone in public.  Ha! But I loved the print and fabric so much (it is a nice, sturdy scuba material), that I stewed over how to wear it for a while, not wanting to return it.  And I finally decided that it could indeed be worn be worn as a top.  In the end, while I still wish it was a dress, I am loving how it looks with leggings, and can’t wait to wear it again when the temperature drops with a cute blazer or leather jacket.

Have you guys ever had a similar experience ordering online before?DSC_2469DSC_2467DSC_2507DSC_2470DSC_2483DSC_2474DSC_2506DSC_2485DSC_2509

Tunic: Shein c/o (I would suggest ordering once size up) | Leggings: JCrew (I SWEAR by these, AND they’re on sale for under $55!!) | Cuff: Forever21 (old) love this | Ring: House of Harlow | Sunnies: Karen Walker (rent them for FREE for one month with code: ALLDOLLEDUP at checkout, and then just $24/month after that for as many months as you choose!) | Bag: 3.1 Phillip Lim | Heels: Vince Camuto (old), craving these

Hope you are all having a great week.  I am traveling again for meetings this week.  And I have to tell you, the past few weeks have been so packed full of travel for me that I’m having a hard time wrapping my head around the fact that tomorrow marks the first day of October!  Where on earth did September go?  Cray cray!! 🙂

Thanks for stopping by!

Color

I am normally a color wearing gal, but lately, all I have been wanting to wear are the neutrals in my closet.  So in an effort to get myself out of a colorless rut, I decided to break out my favorite geometric print pink pants.  And boy am I glad that I did.  I can’t tell you how good it felt to infuse some color and a little life into my outfit!  So if you are feeling in a rut or unsure of what to wear this week, try giving a pop of color a try!  Hopefully it will revive you like it revived me!!!!

Blanket Scarf

I love the blanket scarf trend.  It’s such a chic way to stay cozy during the cold winter months, and a great way to add a pop of color to any outfit.  In fact, I picked up this scarf at the Gap last season (you can see how I styled it last year on the blog here) for this very reason.  I love having the (practical) option of adding a pretty pop of blue and pink to an outfit during the winter months.  But I want to know, what do you all think about the blanket scarf trend???

Geometry

I was never a huge fan of geometry, but I do love a great geometric print!  And this dress is no exception.  Not only is it fun and unique, but it’s also a fantastic piece to wear for work or play.  And if you are looking to make the most of your wardrobe, then a versatile dress (or two!) is key!

I Heart Pink

I’ve noticed that I’ve been sharing quite a few outfits on the blog as of late that have a lot of red in them.  ‘Tis the season, I suppose.  But today I wanted to share with you a look that is still entirely appropriate for the season, even though the primary focus isn’t red.  In my opinion, shades of frosty pinks and blues work just as well for the holiday season as any red ensemble…

I’ve Got The Blues

I love the color blue, but for some reason, it’s a color that I don’t wear very often.  In fact, I hardly have any blue in my closet.  So every once in a while, I find it necessary to remind myself that blue and gray just might be one of the prettiest (and one of my favorite) color combos ever.  And in addition to pretty blues and grays, I think a grandpa cardigan is a must have in every gal’s closet this fall.  Between you and me? I can’t stop wearing mine.  Between this cardigan and my tassel necklace, I think I have a serious problem…

Flower Power

Last weekend I got to spend an evening in Park City with some of my favorite girlfriends. And what better outfit to wear for a night with the girls than my favorite boyfriend jeans paired back to my current fashion crush-a pretty water colored floral blazer. I am absolutely loving the floral trend this season-especially back to torn-up, light wash denim. That mix of sassy and sweet-I swear it gets me every time…

Walking In Memphis

I have always wanted a pair of blue suede shoes. Maybe it’s because I lived in Tennessee and have a deep love for the south, or maybe it’s my adoration for Marc Cohn, but for years they have been at the top of my wish list. So needless to say, I was absolutely thrilled when I stumbled upon this perfect pair. And I swear they make me extra happy every time I wear them. The only thing that could make them any better is if they were on my feet ten feet off of Beale.

I hope you all are having a fabulous week.  I feel like I blinked and it’s Thursday already.  Working in the fashion industry, this time of the year is especially crazy for me.  And all I know is my feet are more anxious for the weekend than I am at this point.  Maybe this holiday season will drive me to wear flats.  Maybe.  😉
